Hello and welcome to the Department of Energy's Office of Economic Impact and Diversity's (ED) website.
The Office supports the Secretary of Energy and the President's Management Agenda commmitment with its emphasis on the strategic management of human resources,
competitive sourcing, financial accountability, and the President's Small Business Agenda.
We take pride in leading the diversity efforts for DOE and we are pleased to be part of this important initiative. We strive to ensure
equal opportunity for the Department's employees and are committed to diversification and equal opportunity in the work place. We look forward to implementing new programs that
will make DOE the Federal Government employer of choice.
In the area of small business, ED has taken the lead in ensuring that the Department opens up its contracting opportunities to all small businesses who are able to meet the needs of
the federal government and to avoid unnecessary contract bundling. We have taken a proactive effort to market to the small business community and to provide information on
contracting opportunities in a timely and efficient manner. We look forward to fulfilling the Secretary's commitment to improving the number and value of contracts to small business in the future.
This web site summarizes the activities of the four offices within ED as we attempt to achieve employment diversity goals and expand the contracting opportunities at the
Department for small and disadvantaged businesses. I am proud of our accomplishments and look forward to the challenges of improving the image and impact of the Department in the years ahead.
